The OKUMA PCH Custom Series Conventional Rods were designed with the latest technology and insight from leading fishermen around the country. The backbone to the PCH Custom Rods is the patented blank construction process dubbed Unidirectional Fiber Reinforcement.
Owned by an Okuma engineer, the patented process blends unidirectional fiber over 24-ton carbon in the extended tip section of the rod to increase lifting strength and power by as much as 400%. This technology provides for the ultimate in strength without sacrificing sensitivity so that you can feel even the lightest of bites.
The component system on the PCH Custom Rods are all top notch featuring Fuji K-guides with Alconite inserts on the Medium, Medium Heavy, and Heavy models, as well as ALPS HXH guides with Zirconium inserts on the Extra Heavy models.
All models also feature ALPS CAH reel seats. The 7-foot and 7-foot 6-inch models feature tapered TPE fore and rear grips and the 8-foot models feature tapered shrink tube for durability and comfort. All PCH Custom Rods also have an ALPS non-skid rubber butt cap to reduce deck slide.
